The Walnut Street Bridge is a must for all visitors! Family friendly walking experience with great views of the city. It is also a wonderful place to watch sporting events happening on the river!

This bridge is just a fun place to visit. It connects two great areas, Coollidge park and the hip North Shore Area on one end and the Aquarium area and Art District on the other.

A great bridge to walk over the Tennessee River. Quite long. The day we were there it was to hot to do it for us.

We crossed this bridge after visiting the Aquarium, and went to the other side of the bridge to get ice cream at Clumpies (make sure you do this, it is awesome!) The view from the bridge is amazing. There were lots of people using the...More

Relaxing strolls along this bridge are a must. The upkeep does not go unnoticed with the flower details and benches along the bridge. You can see Coolidge Park all the way over to the aquarium or watch the boats or kayakers. The view is gorgeous...More

The area around the bridge and walking across the bridge was delightful. We were so impressed with the people out and about on the bridge and in the huge park below it. Not to mention a very unusual ice cream shop at the other end....More

I am looking at getting married in October on the Walnut Street Bridge and was just look for advice from others who have gotten married on the bridge. The Parks & Recreation Department is telling me that we can only use one lane of the bridge, which doesn't seem like it will leave a lot of room for chairs and things for our guests. I have seen pictures of weddings on the bridge and it looks like they are using the whole center part of the bridge but that is not what they are telling me I can do so just looking for advice from others who have gotten married there. Thanks.

I didn't get married there but the bridge is pretty wide. I think you'd just need to find out the dimensions of it and go from there.
Do they have Christmas lights on this bridge this time of year?
